This week I was able to finalize a volunteer opportunity for this winter/spring! I continued talking with Ms. Sutton from NCAIA and we were able to confirm three dates in February (11, 18, and 25) for me to come to their dance classes and assist in teaching. I am super excited to work with NCAIA for the next month, and hopefully for months after as well!
Additionally, this week in dance, a hip hop dancer and choreographer named José Velasquez worked with us as a dance instructor. He taught us a lot about the history of hip hop as well as inequalities in the dance world. His discussion was fascinating and overlapped a lot with the research I did first semester, so I’d be interested in interviewing him this semester if he has availabilities.
